Error message - can not print

Try checking the little "trip switch" that is actuated when oyu close the cover. To find it, locate a small plastic tip in the cover that goes into a small hole when you close the cover. This tells the printer when the cover is opened or closed. Should be on the right or left side of the cover towards the front. The tip may have broken off OR the switch is misaligned. If the tip is there try GENTLY inserting a small screwdriver into the hole and see if that solves it. Otherwise, it is a board malfunction...

Dell 922 printer

One possible source for this kind of problem is the carriage guide. Open the unit and check if the main guide (a shiny rod) is dry. If it is, it can cause all kinds of distortion of characters.
If so, use a resin-free lubricant (sewing machine oil) and apply it very sparingly to that rod. If the unit self-parks as most, I would suggest making it scan and then pulling the plug from the wall so the carriage stays visible. This way, you can gently move the carriage back and forth by hand to distribute the oil. 
Before you close it back up, use a light to peer inside. If you see a plastic band that is threaded through the carriage, use a little window cleaner and a wetted tissue, pinch the band and gently clean the length of it. This band is used for determining where the carriage is and where it should go.

AIO 922 Cover Open

Some how, the sensor that reads when the cover is closed is not reacting like it should.

I assume that you have pulled the cover back up and then back down several times? The status then still indicates that th "cover open" and does not change?

We need to figure out why your sensor is not reading correct. It is located on the right rear when looking with the cover open.

Dell 922 "cover open" problem / error message

I had that problem too.

Unplug the printer.
Hold the printer cover open while you plug in the printer.
Then close the printer after it powers on.

It worked for me.

Yes sounds like you may have a broken or out of alignment hinge on your printer. Examine it very closely to see if you can align it without breaking it. If so try printing again to see if this fixes it. Restart your computer and printer after alignment of door.

Printer ont wanna work

Try opening the cover make sure the cover switch is not damaged. Also try powering the unit down and pull out the power supply cord that goes in the unit in the back. It should be a square retangle box that slips into a power port. Try removing it completly from the unit and inspect the power jack on the printer to make sure its not damaged. Also if its not damaged reconnect while the the printer cover is open turn power back on then close the door. Outside of that I would recommend checking with Dell at Technical Support 1-800-624-9896 to see if they have any product updates on it.
